“I believe as Christians, and as a Christian artist, we need a fresh revelation of who God is. Yes God is our friend, but he is also King, and this is a good thing. If God is no different than you and I, then what kind of God would he be? I am grateful that God is not like me. I am thankful that God is not only good but powerful and Holy, and worthy of my respect.” – Ben Pierce (Read more on Come&Live)
“The world doesn’t need a weak, powerless Jesus that’s “cool” with everything and demands nothing. People need the real Jesus.
The danger in pop culture Christianity is that it lulls people into thinking that being “cool” with Jesus is the same as surrendering to Him, and I’m afraid that pop star endorsements are only perpetuating a growing epidemic of lukewarm cultural Christianity. What’s worse, these stars become examples to millions of young people who now think following Jesus means little, and requires even less. ” – Ben Pierce, Lead Singer of No Longer Music
